Show Record Number on a Layout Form

Question asked by brbsqrd on Aug 7, 2018

So I get how to retrieve the record number from a file with the GET( RecordNumber ) function.  But how do I display it on the form? I tried using a On Layout Enter script trigger for my Layout Form with a

 

Set Variable [ $REC_NO ; Value : Get ( RecordNumber ) ]

 

I thought then all I needed to do was place the local variable on the form like <<$REC_NO>> but it doesn't show anything. I'm new to FileMaker and I don't understand a lot yet.  Can someone help me out here?

 

Likewise if I wanted to display the above RecordNumber and also the total number of records in the file on this form. What else would I need for it that part of it?
